The distinction between the older 2012 released Cintiq 22HD (DTK/H2200), and the newer 2019 released Cintiq 22 (DTK2260), can be kind of confusing if you dont keep up to date with Wacom Products. If you'd like to read a general overview of the newer Cintiq 22, check out our blog review here. Because the Cintiq 22HD (DTK2200) is still being produced, deciding between two Cintiqs that are very similar in size and specs can be difficult if you don't know what you're looking for, so now that the 22HD Touch (DTH2200) is discontinued, we won't mention its touch features further when comparing the two generations.

Overall, the biggest takeaways are that the newer 22 has no ExpressKeys built into the sides like the 22HD does. And the older 22HD includes a stand that allows for angle adjustment and rotation; the newer 22's included stand is just adjustable in angle.
However, the newer 22 has the latest Pro Pen 2 with 4x the pressure sensitivity compared to the older ones. The semi-textured glass on the new 22 is much better than the slippery, ice-like, surface on the 22HD. And for the first time in a long time, Wacom has included two extra Plug types for our friends out of the States. A Type C/E/F Power cable, and a Type G.
(It is also notable that both are full HD 1920x180 Resolution. So anyone dealing with HighRes (2560 and up) should certainly look into the 24 or 32 Pro.)
Comparing each Cintiq with a chart is great and all, but nothing beats getting some hands on experience.
